Thank you for sharing the video with us, Andy.

I got a little lost at the "M1" part of the video, and then giggled when ended up receiving a pitch for signing up for Brilliant at the end of the video...but essentially it sounds like Live Text is going to perform enhanced/improved OCR functions on pictures/images on our phone that have text, including handwriting. While the guy in the video didn't explicitly call this out as an accessibility feature, I agree it will be interesting to hear how it ends up being used for accessibility!

I watched an interesting video<https://youtu.be/A6UX3gF_LAA> this morning on Apple Live Text and thought I would share. It will be interesting to see what impact this has on accessibility for Apple users.
